One person needed treatment for burns after a fire at a transport depot in Bothwell late last night.
Six fire appliances rushed to the RT Keedwell yard in Fallside Road shortly after 10.30.
A huge plume of dark smoke could be seen for miles around and a crowd gathered to watch firefighters tackle the intense blaze.
It’s understood the fire broke out in a stack of pallets. Fortunately, the flames were confined to the yard and the fire didn’t spread to Keedwell buildings or neighbouring premises in the small industrial estate.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “We were alerted to reports of a fire at an industrial site in Bothwell. Six appliances attended and crews extinguished the fire using high-power hoses.
“One casualty was transferred into the care of paramedics after suffering slight burns. Firefighters ensured the area was safe before leaving the scene.”
